The rainy weather did not stop about 80 area business representatives, volunteers and actors from attending the Inaugural Shakespeare in the Barn performances at Homeplace on Green River Saturday evening, April 14, 2018.

The newly renovated barn at Homeplace hosted singing and acting performances by students from Lindsey Wilson College, Campbellsville University and Adair County High School. Performances included skits by Campbellsville U’s Harlequins; excerpts from Shakespeare's Macbeth, a monologue and songs, and Precipice, a student directed one-act play, all by Lindsey Wilson students; and songs from The Sound of Music by Adair County High School students directed by ACHS Theater Director Brett Reliford.

Those attending also were treated to a fish dinner prepared by the Columbia First Baptist Church. The purpose of the evening was to involve local performers and local residents in the opening event at the historic barn.

The Shakespeare in the Barn concept was the idea of Lindsey’s director of theater, Robert Brock and Lindsey Wilson professor and Homeplace board member, David Goguen.

Plans call for three stage plays this summer as part of the Shakespeare in the Barn program. The plays will be performed in June and July by Lindsey Wilson theater students and directed by Brock.

The new stage in the barn, designed by Brock, is part of Homeplace’s effort to provide a unique venue for the many talented performers in southcentral Kentucky.

Four groups will also be performing in the barn April 21, 2018, at Homeplace’s Plow Day/Spring Festival. More information on the Shakespeare in the Barn program and the Homeplace Plow Day/Spring Festival can be found at or at 270 789 0006.
